Emergent Behavior in Quantum MatterUnknown - 2010
Reductionism is an effective tool in physics, but many real-world challenges resist this approach. Large scale behavior emerges in ways that are difficult to predict from the behavior of individual components. When the computational requirements are too massive or the theories that govern the component parts are inadequate, many complex systems have yielded to the physics of emergence, which seeks organizing principles at the system level.
